Akshaya Thritiya ಅಕ್ಷಯ ತೃತಿಯಾ – May 6th 2011

Akshaya Tritiya ಅಕ್ಷಯ  ತೃತಿಯಾ is the most important day in the hindu calendar.  Akshaya means growth and tritiya is the third day of the month in Vaishaka Masa. They say that in order to perform any major function like marriage, gruhapravesha you don’t even have to check your horoscope for finding a good Muhurtham. Any ritual or religious function performed on this day leads to growth.

The Uttaradi matta panchanga also mentions it is very important to apply gandha ಗಂಧ to the Lord. So, if you have access to the same, please do that as well.

On this day, many ladies give thambula including blouse piece, and other items. Any thing you give or donate they say becomes akshaya. Meaning infinite or one that never diminishes.

So, if you have decided to anything new this year, this is the right day to get started.

P.S: It is also the day my Mysore Ajji was born. Happy Birthday Ajji.

    “Any thing you give or donate they say become akshaya. Meaning infinite or one that never diminishes.”
    The Other importance of Akshaya Tritiya is that the “punya” that you reap due to the “daana” you make on this day becomes AKSHAYA – which in turn gives you more so that you can give even more!!!

    Akshaya Tritiya is a day of “Giving” – NOT “Buying” :) – It is a hype created by the Gold Traders probably.

    Completely agree. Imagine the people who buy gold asked to donate the same to poor people. Will they do that? :)
